As w/ most dystopic SF, mix a sensational technological development w/ social-control politics & predict what might happen - as a warning to the society in wch the development is taking place. In this case. perhaps CIA experiments w/ LSD for mind-control purposes (if the author was even aware of them in 1964 when this was probably written) w/ the usual intention of power conglomerates to CONTROL, CONTROL, CONTROL & out comes this possible (near) future (now the present or the past).

It wd be interesting to take all past prophesizing novels & combine their text w/ footage from the times they prophesize about for the sake of juxtaposition & framing. This 'futuristic' bk begins in 1976. A general public living for drugged vacations? That certainly wdn't be hard to find. It's the "super-intellects" of the ruling elites that I'd question here.
